Santiago knew he wanted to follow his dreams; it was helpful when he learned that “When you want something, all the universe conspires to help you achieve it” because he knew he was now destined to complete his goal, and not somebody else’s (Coelho 64). Because of the alchemist telling him this, he knows his Personal Legend and continues to work for it. Out of the many challenges people face in life, some still just give up instead of persevering. The Alchemist, however, shows that people should never give up, but instead fight through bad situations to complete their goals. Others may think we are just suffering when we persevere, but “no heart has ever suffered when it goes in search of its dreams, because every second of the search is a second’s encounter with God and with eternity” (Coelho 134).
Doodle is responsible for his own death for many reasons. One reason is Doodle knew he had a heart condition, yet he continued to overwork himself. Another reason is Doodle knew the consequences of being pushed too hard, but he did not try hard enough to persuade his brother otherwise. The final reason is when Doodle was running in the rain, he should have realized something was wrong and stopped sooner. Although these are good reasons, the majority believe that the narrator is responsible for Doodle’s death.
M Kushner, it tells us about the different reason that scapegoating happens. Everyone scapegoats someone“since we may find ourselves condemning bullies and world leaders while denying our own inclination to split off and project fears and anxieties onto our intimates and neighbors.” In day to day life there are many negative things that one learns about themselves. As one is educating themselves on the thoughts in their brain, they are shocked when they see the negative and evil things that they think of. Their main goal is to keep that information to themselves and they start blaming other people for the negatives. In the the book, when the group was together, Piggy was the main scapegoat.
For instance, Doodle had a long list of problems that made him a burden. It says, “The doctor had said that he mustn’t get too excited, too hot, too cold, or too tired and he must be treated gently.”(345) Brother did not like to follow these rules, he did not enjoy taking Doodle out of the house. It says, “To discourage him from coming with me, I’d run with him across the ends of the cotton rows and careen him around the corners on two wheels.” (345) Brother was self-absorbed because he tried not to have Doodle come with him everywhere. He was mad about having to follow all the rules so he discouraged Doodle from even coming. Another example was when Brother taught Doodle how to walk because he did not like having a brother who was different, but in the happiness of the moment when Doodle could finally walk, he thought, “They did not know that I did it for myself; that pride.”(347) This shows that he taught Doodle to walk to benefit for himself.
I do not fathom it, why am I persecuted here? I cannot offer one proposition but there be a howling riot of argument. I have often wondered if the Devil be in it somewhere; I cannot understand you people otherwise.” (Miller, 30) His dislike influenced other people of the village to question Parris’s authority such as Giles Corey. His death had the most influential impact on the village because when he passed away, Parris and the trials are overthrown which may signify his impact on the society. This frees the next generations of the corrupt minister and the unjust
The respect that should have been shown to Hershell is completely absent throughout the group’s stay. Despite his saving of Carl and providing the group with shelter and food, the demand for more than he was initially willing to offer grows. Had the group conducted themselves more respectfully and in a more appropriate matter, there could be a scenario in which they could find themselves staying at the farm, but at the point that they had left the farm, the situation was too far
[H] When George began to develop hopeful thinking, he began to have a more optimistic view of life and work as the reader is able to read about in the novel. [I] George constantly reminds Lennie that he’ll be able to take care of the rabbits that they will have on the farm, and he begins to think realistically about the idea of the farm such as the pricing. The idea of the farm brings out an emotion that George seemed to have difficulty expressing. [J] At the end of the novel, George’s hope serves him the discomfort of loss, but guides him with peace in return. [K] In the article, How We Lose Hope And How We Get It Back by Joe Wilner, Wilner writes a description of how people lose their hoping saying, “When we experience loss over time we
Strangely enough, Atticus was also able to see the good in Mayella Ewell, and it tore him apart having to destroy her testimony on the stand. In chapter eighteen Scout says, “Atticus hit her hard in a way that was not clear to me, but it gave him no pleasure to do so. He sat with his head down..”(Lee 252). When Atticus had to defend Tom he also had to show the jury that Mayella was speaking lies which made him upset to do so. He knew Mayella was a victim in the situation too and did not want to hurt her more than Bob Ewell already did.
Fitzgerald exploited the story comes with figurative language and characterization so he demonstrated to the audience the ultimate goal may affect when falling in love with someone from a different social class can be an obstacle to achieving the American Dream. Gatsby carried unrealistic imagination in mind despite to his nature born in the low status of the society. Gatsby-himself must have faced many difficult challenges ahead in the society life to passed the self-limit to achieving his fantasy dream. As the author borrowed Nick’s narration in the story to illustration the characterization "His parents were shiftless and unsuccessful farm people--his imagination had never really accepted them as his parents at all.” (.98). This line depicted Gatsby life when he was a little, and this characterization contained a big ambitious dream of a child who starting from the bottom to get
In “Barn Burning” William Faulkner writes, “‘You would have told him.’ He didn’t answer. His father struck him with the flat of his hand on the side of his head…” (Faulkner 4). Sarty wishes to reveal the truth to others, but there is always the threat of Abner’s abuse and disappointment looming over him. In reality, the physical abuse affects Sarty less than his constant fear of not living up to Abner’s expectations, which reveals plenty about Sarty’s personality. Abner expects his son to stand wholeheartedly by his actions, right or wrong.
